More equal than others

So the workers of the US Postal Service are exempt from Biden’s mandatory vaccine requirement. Can’t be pissing off the people who are redirecting your fraudulent ballots.

This entire thing is an outrage, but let’s keep things in perspective. We haven’t even begun to see how bad things will get. Things are going to get worse. A lot worse, and that is even before the killing starts.

Here it is

Biden has mandated everyone get the vaccine by executive order.

Politics, not science

Much has been made of Governor Ron Desantis’ executive order banning schools from mandating masks. School districts sued and won the ability to override parent choice by requiring all children to wear masks.

School boards cite the CDC’s recommendation that all students in school wear masks as their reason for doing so.

It isn’t science that is at play here, though. The CDC caved to pressure from teachers’ unions when they wrote that recommendation.

Paging Dr Mengele

Jeffery Smith was in the hospital with COVID. He had less than a 30 percent chance to live. His doctor ordered Ivermectin. The hospital refused to allow the drug to be given, so Mrs. Smith sued. The judge in the case ordered the hospital to allow the Ivermectin to be delivered.

The man’s condition began to improve.

The hospital appealed the decision, which was overturned. The hospital has discontinued the therapy. Who cares if patients die, as long as the narrative is maintained?

This kind of thing makes me believe that this pandemic is more about political power and control than it is science or medicine.

Here it comes

I posted the story about how the left thinks that kids can and should be vaccinated over their parents objections, and here comes Pfizer, saying that their vaccine will be approved for children by the end of the year.

Your kids are property of the State

The left believes that your children belong to the state. Parents, according to them, are not permitted to decide what is best for their children. This quote from the article sums it up:

When it comes to society’s interest in protecting children, the legal precedent is unambiguous: The rights of their parents come second.

With this in mind, how long will it be before the state decides what job they will perform, whether or not your child will receive a sex change operation, and whether or not they even get to live with you?

Doctors who want to sit there and tell parents that they know best need to remember thalidomide, or the fact that a study by Johns Hopkins University estimates that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 250,000 people a year.

They want to vaccinate and mask your children over your objections. They cite the health of your children, even though only 470 US children have died of COVID in the past 20 months, according to the CDC’s own data. In fact, fewer children died last year than in previous years.

This isn’t unusual. Approximately 188 children a year die from the flu.

None of that matters to the state. If you are reading this blog and don’t yet understand that the left considers us all to be the property of the state, I don’t know that you ever will get it.

All I know is that THIS video from Gunfreezone boils my blood. This is what the left wants for your children. This is my red line in the sand. I will kill to defend my children and my grandchildren.

COVID

Some COVID facts, straight from my hospital experience. We are still short staffed, but that is more a pay issue than an overcrowding issue. I am still working 60 hours a week.

We are still at higher than normal patient levels. Our admitted patients are almost all either cardiac or COVID patients. We are seeing younger patients now. The typical patient being admitted now is in their early to mid 50s.

More patients are critical and are dying than before. I am seeing an average of 2 to 3 patients die of COVID related problems each day. There were none yesterday at my hospital, but four the day before. Nearly all of the deaths are in older people, but there are a few younger ones.

The treatment for COVID that I am seeing is largely high flow oxygen, Remdesivir, Vitamins C, D, and Zinc. We got a new protocol this week: any COVID patient who is on more than 6 liters of oxygen has to be placed on continuous remote blood oxygen monitoring. We don’t have enough of those for everyone, so surgical patients, those with a DNR, and other low priority patients are having to have their blood O2 checked manually every hour instead of continuously.

Anyhow, I managed to get the weekend off, so I posting on this blog will be light. I am going to relax for the weekend.

Enjoy your labor day.

Why get a test?

I just heard from my daughter. Her children (my grandkids) are staying at their (other) grandparents’ house. My granddaughter, the oldest of the two, was complaining of a headache and had a fever. So the grandparents took her to the Doc in a Box, who tested her for COVID.

You guessed it- she has COVID. Now at seven years old, she is unlikely to have much more than a mild illness from it. Any of you who have raised kids know that the little ones get mystery illnesses all of the time, and most of them come with a fever. You treat it with children’s Tylenol, fluids, and rest. What HAS changed is now my daughter can’t go to work, the kids can’t go to school, and my grandson is now going to get tested as well.

I just don’t understand what you gain by getting a COVID test. Whether it is COVID or some other illness, what you do to treat it is the same: Tylenol, fluids, rest, and maybe something for any other symptoms you have. How does knowing that it is COVID change anything? The only thing it changes is transforming you and the other members of your household into pariah for the next two weeks.

If your curiosity simply MUST be satisfied, take the at home test. At least with the at home test, no one else but you has to know if you have COVID.

In case you are keeping score, the members of my family who have had COVID:

  • Daughter in law to be (vaccinated)
  • Father in law (half vaccinated at the time)
  • Mother in law (half vaccinated at the time)
  • Daughter (not vaccinated)
  • Mother (vaccinated)
  • Brother (vaccinated)
  • Granddaughter (not vaccinated)

In addition, I have eight other friends who have had it. Most of them caught it before the vaccines were available. Two of them had COVID after being vaccinated. Not one of them had a serious infection.

The most serious of them were my mother in law and father in law, both of whom were sick at home for a couple of weeks. Everyone else had symptoms best described as a cold.

Again, we need to be spending our resources finding out why a small percentage of the public is having serious problems with this infection. Why them? What is different about them?

Purging the military

Here come the camps. Military troops are the first ones to be purged. The language is subtle, but it’s there.

allowances would certainly be made for religious exemptions and for those with pre-existing conditions that precluded vaccinations.

Admiral John Kirby

You have to have been in the military to catch the lie in this one. Chaplains in the military are commissioned officers. When I was in, they used to tell us that they were loyal to God first and the military second, so we should feel safe in talking to them. I didn’t believe that for a second. As officers, their careers depend on their fitrep. God won’t be the one writing their fitrep, their superior officer would. One small phrase in a fitrep can end a career. There won’t be any religious exemptions.

Medical doctors in the military? You guessed it, they are officers, too. If the President says the jab is safe, it’s safe. Orders are orders. There won’t be any medical exemptions.

So what then?

 “They will also be offered a chance to sit down with their chain of command and their leadership to talk about the risks that their objection will impose on the unit and on the force and on their teammates.”

Conversations with the chain of command aren’t what civilians think of as conversations. In the military, the superior talks. The subordinate says things like “Yes, sir,” or perhaps, “Yes, Sergeant,” or even, “Yes, Chief.” Anything else leads to the next step.

“There are — it is — once you mandate it, as we’ve done, it is a lawful order. It’s a lawful order, and we fully anticipate that our troops are going to follow lawful orders,”

The UCMJ is specific on this one. The one that applies here is Article 92: Failure to Obey a Lawful Order or Regulation. What is a lawful order? Whatever the President or an officer says it is. You can try to be a “bedroll lawyer,” but it won’t work. No officer in this military is going to oppose this President, not unless he or she wants to also be charged with an Article 92.

So what happens when you violate Article 92? A violation of or failure to obey lawful general order or regulation may result in a dishonorable discharge, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and confinement for 2 years. It would also be considered a FELONY conviction.

Does anyone reading this doubt that anyone pushing this will be broken at the wheel?

Camps are coming

After reading this story about schools tracking unvaccinated students by forcing them to wear ankle monitors, I have no doubt that camps are coming.
